"Workshop: Automating Swift deployments with SwiftStack"

By: John Dickinson

This interactive session will cover automation and management tools for OpenStack Swift. Attendees will learn about the deployment mechanisms behind the scenes of SwiftStack. This is a hands-on workshop where we will install and configure a SwiftStack cluster in a virtual machine on attendees’ laptops.

In this workshop, attendees will learn about: 

  • The automation required to run OpenStack Swift in production
  • Runtime stacks for load-balancing, ssl-termination and authentication
  • Networking architecture for Swift
  • Monitoring Swift-specific metrics
  • Tuning a Swift cluster
  • Best practices for cluster expansion and failure handling 

Attendees should bring their laptops (with virtualization extensions enabled in the BIOS), and we will provide a virtual machine image that will be used during the workshop.
